It felt like we got our first taste of the cold last week. August is winding down, and Edmontonians keep peeking at the leaves above their heads to make sure there aren’t many of them too eager to signal the approaching fall.
But the bloggers of Edmonton are keeping their heads down and powering through, not one of them daring to mention — and jinx — a waning summer. So, I’ll take this opportunity to apologize for tempting the gods of nature.
I’ll also share with you some of my recommended reads from Edmonton bloggers/content creators this week. If you or someone you know has written a blog that deserves my attention, head over to our handy blog submission form. Meanwhile, here’s some outstanding content from the week ending August 25, 2012, in no particular order:
- Maurice Tougas shared his thoughts on the leadership “fortunes” of the federal Liberal party, invoking the name “Trudeau”
- Mack Male spoke with Miranda Sayer about how Edmonton needs more space for art exhibits
- Trent Wilkie brought something up that I hadn’t thought of, but which is worth discussion: what the hell did Great West Publishing do with all of See Magazine’s online content when they sold the paper to Vue?
- Alex Abboud continued his reign of blogging supremacy (he’s had great stuff all summer long) with a post on how urban design impacts homelessness
- Nadine Riopel had some interesting thoughts on something I’m really terrible at: saying “no”
- Todd Herron posted about the similarities between the GOP and the Wildrose Party
